Dream Theater

Postby Black Wizard » Wed Sep 11, 2019 7:55 am

Only two UK shows as part of a European Tour. This will be 'Scenes From a Memory' in full and another regular set.

I'm surprised they're only doing two shows over here. I was hoping for a show on a Saturday somewhere, but I guess it'll have to be London on a Friday.

The UK venues are the Hammersmith Apollo and Clyde Auditorium.

It's rubbish that they're only doing 2 dates, but I'll definitely be in London.

Tickets for Glasgow are on general sale from 9am on Friday, but there is a venue presale, and are priced from £50 to £80.

London tickets are onsale from Monday at 10am and are similarly priced.

There are also a couple of ridiculous VIP packages One of called "Out of Reach" - yeah, out of reach for my bank account. https://www.seetickets.com/event/dream- ... on/1424318

Might be worth doing the Glasgow date just to see Scenes. Don't think I'd stick around for the second half if they're mostly doing their new shite.

Yeah that's awful. The "Out of Reach" is a VIP tote bag with a limited edition lithograph, a drumhead, a lanyard and an enamel pin - I am not paying £250 for that. The "Go the Distance" package is all of that plus a meet & greet with the band and a VIP host. I really hate these VIP packages. If bands (or their management/promoter) want to give fans a chance to meet them then it shouldn't break the bank. Just have a prize draw for fan club members.

If you skip the second half you'll miss 'Scenes From a Memory'. They'll do that after the regular set, as least that what they did with 'Images and Words' on the last tour.

I just got that alert. I might get a ticket for the Saturday show too if I can get a better seat.

You have to pay nearly an extra £100 for that honour :eyes:

One of my co-workers has gone all out for the package as well :lol: No wonder they only do 2-3 gigs a year :evillaff:

One of my colleagues did the meet & greet for Dream Theater in Singapore once. They were told there would be freebies and nibbles available, which turned out to be flyers for the show and nachos with salsa dip. John Myung - not known for being a chatterbox - was the only band member to turn up. A bit of a waste.

I got a better seat as the tickets for the Saturday show went on sale a few minutes ago. Nearly got a front row seat clicked a millisecond too late.
